I was hoping to quit this class and get my Saturdays back, but they asked me to continue as the girls were still too busy on weekdays - and they liked me! There is one more girl this year, making three in total, 12 years old, first year at junior high. The new girl's name is Rina (the Japanese spelling of Lena). The other two are Shiori and Tomoka.
They are a very quiet class! Shy and slow, but excellent workers, if they lack a little in visible enthusiasm, I have to believe it's in there somewhere, as they keep coming back! I just hope they like this year's text book - it's one I've taught before and I didn't like it then - it's very repititous.
Good luck to us
